(AllHipHop News) Last night (January 17) as part of his The Dreamer/ The Believer promotional run, Common gave an impromptu performance, as he hosted a private listening session at Privae, an upscale lounge just north of downtown Dallas.
Entitled the “Common Play Back”, in association with Grey Goose, X Rated Fusion Liqueor, Dallas’ K104, and 97.9 The Beat, tastemakers were treated to freestyles and an in-depth introspective of Common’s most recent work.
With Virdiko’s big daddie THE DJ at the helm, the Grey Goose and X Rated Fusion Liqueor flowed as Common hosted the intimate listening session, going through several of the songs on his new album, giving explanations of each song, and rapping along the acclaimed project produced entirely by No I.D.
Highlights from the listening session included Common rapping over “South Dallas Swag” beats – more specifically, over T Cash’s “Spread Ya Legs.” Common also spoke about his love for Maya Angelou as his mentor, and his love of Hip-Hop music and culture. Common brought every bit of Chi-Town to Dallas, as he embraced the crowd. Take a look some of the pictures below. Photo credit: Sonny Digital
